With the cooler weather coming Baby’s Leaf Hybrid Spinach is a suitable selection to grow at the Veggie-Bed. Sowing this hybrid spinach just before the cold weather arrives yields a fall harvest. Having a germination time of 7-14 days, and 30 days to harvest makes this an excellent choice for the Veggie-Bed’s plant hardiness zone (zone 8a). Baby’s Leaf is frost tolerant and will survive with an application of mulch well into late fall.

High in vitamin A, vitamin K and folate one cup of raw Baby’s Leaf Spinach supplies more than the daily value for vitamin K, which is important for proper blood clotting. Used in salads, smoothies, and cooked dishes this versatile vegetable is often consumed here at the Veggie-Bed.
